I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Health and Wellness Coach. I have been a social worker for the past ten years counseling people with chronic medical conditions and providing grief counseling to patients and families.
The inspiration for my business Flourish Wellness; came from my desire to help people avoid chronic disease and illness through learning to nurture themselves as part of their lifestyle; body, mind, and soul. This passion came from my own journey with managing weight, improving my self-esteem, and learning to love and care for myself. I began running, biking, and hiking, and it has changed my physical, mental and emotional health for the better. I also noticed I had more energy and stamina when the majority of my diet came from fruits, vegetables, lean meats, and other whole foods. I love my life and have enjoyed the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and I love helping others to do the same.
Flourish Wellness Consulting is a life coaching and counseling practice centered on helping people overcome obstacles to positive change and to make their health a priority. My mission is to help people make peace with their bodies and like who they are.
I come from a “strengths” perspective and believe that each person has the answers inside themselves to find true peace, happiness, and fulfillment. As a clinical social worker I help people overcome self-defeating thoughts, behaviors, and discouragement. I do this through positive psychology, motivational interviewing, mindfulness as well as other body awareness techniques.
